Abstract : This report is an interim response to the flood protection needs of Roughans Point. The recommended flood protective measure involves rugged rock berm sloping seaward along Roughan's Point shore to dissipate incoming waves. This plan provides a 500-year protection over 300 structures in the flood plain. The BCR is 1.1 to 1.
